Micmacs is a film that drunkenly sways towards the edge. It never falls off, but it comes awfully close several times. As a biting satire of the arms race, it is just that. As a quirky film about quirky characters doing quirky things, it does its job. As an enjoyable film filled with whimsy and visual invention it’s quite good. It’s just too much of too many things. Almost too whimsical, almos... read more

Since I have enjoyed all the movies directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, I was really eager to check this flick. Eventuallly, even though I enjoyed it, it must be, unfortunately, his weakest directing so far (yeah, even the critically panned 'Alien : Resurrection' was better than this in my opinion). The first disappointment was that Jamel Debbouze was cast as the lead but dropped out and was replaced ... read more

A good movie

“Since I have enjoyed all the movies directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, I was really eager to check this flick. Eventuallly, even though I enjoyed it, it must be, unfortunately, his weakest directing so far (yeah, even the critically panned 'Alien : Resurrection' was better than this in my opinion). The first disappointment was that Jamel Debbouze was cast as the lead but dropped out and was replaced by another famous French comedian, Dany Boon who had just reached some major success with 'Bienvenue chez les Ch'ti'. Indeed, Debbouze was an appealing choice but Boon was a let-down since he is pretty annoying. Eventually, to be honest, Danny Boon was actually decent. Futhermore, as usual, Jeunet created a very appealing world, visually quite impressive some combination between 'Delicatessen' and” read more

"Oh man, such a disappointment. Jean-Pierre Jeunet is one of the most interesting directors to emerge during the past couple of decades, but not by the means of this film. Micmacs, while boasting a highly refined visual style, fails to evoke any interest towards the oh-so-eccentric characters and their irritatingly random adventures. The story doesn't hold up to any scrutiny, nor is it even clever - something Jeunet usually excels in. Nevertheless, Micmacs is nowhere near a bad film, but I've com"

"JxSxPx's review French language film from the same director that enchanted so many of us with "Amelie" and the nearly as great "City of Lost Children" meant high expectations for this film. My points of disappointment are best articulated by the above review. "

“Micmacs is a film that drunkenly sways towards the edge. It never falls off, but it comes awfully close several times. As a biting satire of the arms race, it is just that. As a quirky film about quirky characters doing quirky things, it does its job. As an enjoyable film filled with whimsy and visual invention it’s quite good. It’s just too much of too many things. Almost too whimsical, almost too many ideas bouncing around all at once, too many quirky characters doing quirky things just because it’s French, and that’s what they do. But I was never bored, and I walked out enjoying it way more than the problems that I had with it.

The story, which seems secondary to the whimsy, is about a sad, lonely man who gets shot in the head and discovers two rival arms dealer’s r” read more
